Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Book Releases for the First Half of 2020

Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. I actually don’t have ten books for this list, as I typically don’t usually anticipate books coming out. I always get surprised when new books come out, and I typically don’t find myself waiting for the next book of a big series! I also always have books to read, so I don’t really find myself waiting around for a specific book to come out. But I want to try to do all the TTTs for 2020, so here are my top 5 books that I am looking forward to reading this year!

1) House of Earth and Blood

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City, #1)

I love Sarah J. Maas’ Court of Thorns and Roses series, and I don’t know when the next book in that spinoff series is coming out. While I was in the process of looking for the next ACOTAR book, I found out that Maas is going to be coming out with an entirely new series about Angels and Demons in March of this year! I personally haven’t finished the Throne of Glass series, so I hope to be able to finish those books and then pick this one up when it comes out. Read the synopsis by clicking the book cover!




2) The Chosen #2

The Chosen #2 (Contender, #2)

I really do enjoy Taran Matharu’s books, and I was lucky enough to be on a blog tour for the first book of this series, The Chosen. I didn’t absolutely love The Chosen, but I definitely liked it a lot and I think that this series has a lot of potential. I can’t wait to see what book 3 has in store for Cade.

3) Masters’ Mistress

Masters' Mistress (The Angel Eyes #1)

I read the prequel to the Angel Eyes series many months ago, and I absolutely loved it. These books do not romanticize slavery in any way, the men of this world are beaten and broken because they lost the war and have been abused by the women of the world for so long. Jake’s Redemption was an amazing read, I wasn’t expecting the prequel to be so fleshed out. I actually forgot that I was only reading a prequel to the main series after a while. Now, I am excited to see what will happen to rebellious Bret and kind Angel in the next book of this unique series. Read the synopsis by clicking the book cover!


4) The Damned

The Damned (The Beautiful, #2)

I loved The Wrath and the Dawn, but I haven’t finished that series yet. I loved Flame In The Mist, but I haven’t finished that series either even though I got Smoke In The Sun signed by Renée Ahdieh! I haven’t even STARTED The Beautiful yet, but I know that I am going to love it. Therefore, I know that I am already excited for The Damned to come out next year. Read the synopsis by clicking the book cover!






5) The Gilded Ones

The Gilded Ones (Deathless, #1)

This book I had no idea about until I started creating this list, but I am super excited for it. This book is about a 16 y/o girl named Deka who lives in fear of her blood ceremony. If she has red blood, she will become a member of her village. But on the day of her ceremony, her blood runs gold, and she will face the consequences of her impurity. Then she is offered a place in an army of girls who also have the “impure” blood, and so she has to leave the village she has always loved. I am actually going to try to get an advance copy of this book if it pops up on Netgalley, so wish me luck! Read the synopsis by clicking the book cover!






Thanks for reading my Top 5 picks for next year, which books are you anticipating?
